Increasing Demand for Organic Food is Escalating the Demand of Biofertilizers Globally

Updated Apr 27 



Biofertilizers comprise living microbes, which when applied to seed, plant, and soil, stimulate growth by supplying essential nutrients, such as N, P, and other mineral nutrients. The rise in demand for organic products is booming, due to the increase in conscientious consumers, but also due to rising incomes, along with improved farming practices that make organic yields more robust. This resulted in increased adoption of biofertilizers. In terms of a number of producers, India was the world's biggest producer of organic foods in 2019. India had 1.4 million organic food producers in that year, which was more than the total number of organic food producers in the other nine leading countries. Consumption of Organic Food Denmark and Switzerland are the two leading countries in terms of organic food consumption per capita, with yearly organic food consumption of USD 408.13 and USD 401.01, respectively. The first eight countries with the highest per capita consumption of organic food are all located in Europe. The United States and Canada were ranked ninth and tenth, respectively. Organic agricultural covers around 72 million hectares worldwide.


Even though India has the most organic food producers, Australia had by far the largest share of organic agricultural area in the world. Australia accounted for over half of all organic farmland in the planet. Australia was followed by Argentina and China, with 5.08 percent and 4.39 percent of the vote, respectively.

The COVID19 has resulted in a profound re-evaluation of the advantages and costs of biofertilizers. The pandemic has been a devastating disease worldwide. However, biofertilizers has witnessed a relatively stable market growth post-COVID-19 pandemic, with a similar trend of high demand in 2020 due to the increased demand for organic food. For instance, in France, organic food shops like Biocoop and Naturalia reported sales increases of over 30% since the COVID-19 crisis started. Biofertilizers can be developed easily, and therefore, are run by local manufacturers. As the produce can be manufactured by local businesses, the supply chain has been relatively unaffected by the crisis. As a result, in most nations, domestic producers are expected to dominate the market. For instance, as per Soyabean and Corn Advisor 2021, the soybean condition improved 2% whereas 60% rated good and excellent in the US region.


According to UnivDatos Market Insights (UMI)’ research report “Global Biofertilizers Market Analysis, 2020”, the Global Biofertilizers market is projected to grow at a CAGR of XX% during 2021-27F. The increased population has increased the need for organic food this has resulted in increased demand for biofertilizers, globally. In 2021, the global population is around 7 billion people, half of the global population is living in Asia, while one quarter of the global population resides in Africa. Moreover, the consumption of biofertilizers for agriculture use has significantly increased in Asia-Pacific region. As per Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, in 2019, Asia used 6,258,499 tonnes of nitrogen nutrient and 24,051,102.26 tonnes of nutrient phosphate.


Based on the product, nitrogen fixing biofertilizers grabbed XX% revenue share in 2020. The market size of this segment touched US$ XX Billion in 2020. The market share of the segment is expected to maintain its dominance in the forthcoming years as well owing to the owing to the improvement of highly contaminated soil and water reserves due to use of synthetic fertilizers.


Based on the Application, the cyanobacter-based biofertilizers segment acquired the major market share and grabbed US$ XX Billion revenues from the Biofertilizers market in 2020. Reduced input cost and increase the bioavailability of phosphorus is boosting the growth.
